According to a research report undertaken by Frost and Sullivan in 2014, women made up just 12% of the global cybersecurity workforce. Even the Cybercrime Magazine concluded on March 28, 2019, that women now make up about 21% of global infosec payrolls; and whilst this is an encouraging development we’re hoping to see this trend continue in 2021 and beyond. We cover a lot of Women In Cybersecurity conferences and this one is key in our listings for 2021.

We do this by honouring their accomplishments, value, and contributions to the Australian market and giving them the recognition they deserve.
